Windows  Update ends h Pro Gamer Session

Windows 10 has struck again! Users beware, it seems there is no escaping the Windows 10 update, and it is even dropping at the worst possible moment.

Just a week after screwing up a live weather report, a Windows 10 update has burned a marathon gaming session being held by pro-gamer Erik Flom.

In the hilarious clip, Flom is in the process of completing a nine hour gaming session with Counterstrike, when his computer unexpectedly starts updating to a new Windows 10 build. Anyone who has been awaiting a Windows 10 update will know that the scheduling window has a habit.

Anyone who has been awaiting a Windows 10 update will know that the scheduling window has a habit at popping up randomly, but for a machine to shut down completely is rare.

With 130,000 people watching the livestream, it was hardly a convenient moment for the update and Flom’s reaction was suitably hilarious, with more than a hint of shock.

How did this happen! Fuck you Windows 10Oh my god, you have one job PC! Update faster you fuck!

Naturally, it was not that Flom did not want to update Windows 10, the problem is that the gamer had clearly not scheduled this update to happen, stating in the video that he had “turned everything off”.

This is not the first time that the curse of unexpected Windows 10 update / upgrade actions have struck at an inconvenient time, as KCCI weather reporter Metinka Slater found last week.

Unlike Flom’s interruption, Slater was delivering a live weather report when the Windows 10 upgrade prompt popped up onto the screen, as it has a habit of randomly doing.

In that instance the reporter simply ignored the prompt (something we have all done) and moved on. Of course, for Flom that was impossible as his machine decided it was just going to go ahead and jump straight into the upgrade. Flom was able to halt the update and continue with his Counterstrike session, which you can see in full right here.

    The guy is an idiot! He knew it was going to happen. Watch the entire stream, he had plenty of opportunity to avoid it. He is getting the attention that he had hoped for.

    This guy should have known better! He knew well in advance that Windows was going to update. He had every opportunity to keep it from happening. He just wanted to add more attention to his steam, so it seems. As a supposed “pro gamer” he should have already had everything updated in the first place. Not only that, but it appears that the update was the November update and if that was true, this guy had no excuse what so ever. This just looks like another attempt at jumping on the “Windows 10 Sucks!” bandwagon.

        Ooh, you got me! Glad you felt the need to share your wonderful contribution to the discussion. Well done!

          actually was forced to update as well. wasn’t doing anything too important at the time. always got the prompt and always declined but didn’t think it was going to force the update on me.

    Windows asks you… literally asks you if you want Win10 installed in the background or if you want to install it yourself at a time you choose later on. It’s literally a click box that this jag bag didn’t read. That news channel should fire their IT person.
